Techniques, tips & strategies for the effective management of international construction disputes

On Demand Webinar

On Tuesday, 17 November 2020, as part of the Dubai Arbitration Week, the Singapore International Arbitration Centre (SIAC) hosted a webinar focused on international arbitration.

International arbitration is the preferred dispute resolution mechanism for cross-border construction and infrastructure disputes. Parties face unique challenges as these projects are often complex, involving multiple parties and contracts. The disruptions caused by COVID-19 have added to the complexity of the issues faced by developers, contractors, suppliers and subcontractors.

In this webinar, leading international arbitration practitioners and arbitrators discuss the strategic considerations as well as tools and techniques that may be utilised for the efficient resolution of cross-border construction disputes.

The opening address was provided by Ms Lim Seok Hui, CEO of SIAA and the panel discussion was moderated by Mr Gary Born, President of SIAC Court of Arbitration and Chair, International Arbitration Practice Group at Wilmer Culer Pickering Hale & Dorr.

The panel comprised HKA’s Mr Derek Nelson, Partner, Mr Thomas Snider, Partner & Head of Arbitration at Al Tamimi & Company, Dr Hassan Arab, Partner & Head of Dispute Resolution at Al Tamimi & Company, Mr Lim Dao Kai, Partner at Allen & Gledhill and Ms Erin Miller Rankin, Partner at Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer.

Having experts engage directly with each other and seeking to narrow the differences that they genuinely have at an early point in the proceedings, cuts down a lot of the expense and time involved in considering an incomplete picture. Even if they cannot agree, what you get is a statement of why they cannot agree and that is astonishingly important.”
